Sweet Fern in my neighborhood . . . another dye plant waiting in wings

Comptonia  peregrina: UW-Stevens Point Freckmann Herbarium: Plant Details Page

I've been eyeballing this lovely low growing shrub on my regular dog walks for years. Now, I finally understand it's instintual appeal to me. It's a dye plant! My guild used it when we did our day long workshop at Windy Hamlet Farm a few years ago. I want to dig it up! Plant it in my backyard. Get the dye pots ready. Here we go.
